PSEG True Diversity Film Series - White Fragility Discussed by Author Robin DiAngelo
A panel discussion that touches upon 2018 book, White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. How can white people be allies, co-conspirators or partners of people of color in fighting racial injustice? An all-white panel of activists and academics will have a candid and courageous conversation about their own path to understanding white privilege and embracing the work of anti-racism, and the useful and effective ways they’ve found they can be allies to communities of color.

Please view DiAngelo's film from August 17 through August 24: https://youtu.be/45ey4jgoxeU

Please join us for a virtual panel discussion moderated by Richard Cammarieri, Director of Community Engagement at the New Community Corporation and a lifelong Newarker and community organizer.

Our panel will feature guests who will discuss the impact of white fragility and systemic racism on our local communities, as well as the role the arts can play in advancing social justice. They include:

● Tobie Stein, a two-time Fulbright Specialist and a member of the Diversity Scholars Network at the National Center for Institutional Diversity, University of Michigan, and a member of the American Sociological Association.

● Becca Zimmerman, a rising senior at Pitzer College, where she is majoring in Political Studies and Economics. After being elected Student Body President of Pitzer College this spring, she has split her time this summer between serving her college, and collaborating with current students and fellow alumni from Newark Academy, a private school in Livingston, to challenge deep-rooted racism in the school’s policies and culture.

● Mark Katz is John P. Barker Distinguished Professor of Music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Founding Director of the hip hop cultural diplomacy program. He is currently working with death row inmates in North Carolina to bring attention to injustice in America’s prisons through the arts.
